    How is this recording in 4K? I thought 4K needs more than 8MP?

    Please stop believing such ********. You car can't drive when you don't have gas in your tank right?
    iPhones cameras can't record in 4k because the camera (hardware) can't shoot at 4k.

    It says on the page that the video is upscaled to 4K (from 3K?). But that's really something you could do yourself.

    Seems like nice app with the price drop but I still can't see what's better in that than on MoviePro or Ultrakam Pro which both cost under $10. Of course that one takes every frame as photo which might make difference. But can't believe the difference until I see it myself.

    Price drop to $10 and I'll buy it just to test it. Until that there's no chance.

    eh?

    the app is taking a series of photos at 8MP and stitching them into a 4k video.

    Noticed that, but there's still a lot of unanswered questions which might make the poor video guys hesitate. Like what's the maximum bitrate, does it really take 4,3GB space per minute (or do they mean 3Mb not MB), does the quality drop after exporting the video as 4K, does it produce better quality than its 10 times cheaper competitioners, why iPhone 6 / 6 Plus is limited to 10fps, how much the quality drops when converted from still images to video etc..

    I'm almost excited about this app but these questions and that app's marketing makes me hesitate a lot.

    Edit: Kinda funny how they compare the app's abilities to the front-facing camera.

    Yeah it's a limitation of iOS 8, not the hardware.

    Is this a joke? Just buy an android if you want to record in 4k

    Even if it did take choppy ass video with a series of 8mp camera shots at 10 fps, 4k is 8.3 mp. So still fail.

    Noticed that a while back. Wanted to show my friend this ridiculous $1k ios app, only to find that the price had dropped to $50. Still not getting one. ;)

    If I ever make an app I am going to start it off at $999, then reduce the price to $.99 for "limited time" to see who many suckers I can get to buy my crappy app just because it's 99% off.

    ProCam 2 shoots "4K" with 25 fps (they claim it could record 30fps too) on iOS 8.1. And it shoots the video in motion jpeg format with average of 80mbps. Maybe there's the big difference then with the real resolutions as Vizzywig shoots 8mp video and ProCam 2 6mp video. Maybe it will change by time. We'll see.

    4K shot with Android devices is a perfect example of low quality 4K. Most of the devices capable of that shares the same bitrate than iPhone 6's 1080p in video. And with apps worth less than $5 you can double that bitrate (and even pixels) on iPhone.

    Of course the 4K shot with any Android devices looks nice overall, but there's no real difference to Full HD except it has a lot more artifacts caused by (too) low bitrate/high compression. Might be a bit better on close-ups though.

    The app shoots the video with resolution worth 8mp and then upscales it to 4K. Or it should do.
